Serves 8 | Prep Time | Cook Time


Meringue Shell:
4 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 cup sugar
4 egg yolks
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup fresh lime juice (2 to 3 limes) 1 cup chilled whipping cream
1 TB grated fresh lime peel
Whipped cream and lime peel for garnish


Preheat oven to 275 degrees.

Generously butter a 9-inch pie plate.

In a small mixing bowl, beat egg whites and cream of tartar until foamy.

Beat in sugar very slowly, 1 tablespoon at a time, until stiff and glossy, about 10 minutes. Pile into pie pan, pushing up around the sides. Bake for 1 hour.

Turn off oven, leaving pie in the oven with the door closed for 1 hour.

Remove from oven and let cool.


Beat egg yolks until light and lemon-colored. Stir in salt, sugar and lime juice.

Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens, about 5 minutes.

Cool completely.

In a chilled bowl, beat cream until stiff.

Fold in filling mixture and grated peel.

Pile into meringue shell and chill at least 4 hours.

Garnish with whipped cream and lime peel twists.
